Oxford theologian: read Aquinas to counter evolutionism

Catholic World News - August 23, 2012

In a lengthy interview with Vatican Radio, William Carroll, a member of the Faculty of Theology of the University of Oxford, distinguished the scientific findings of evolutionary biology from a philosophic evolutionism.

Carroll, who has written widely in the history of science, recommends the study of St. Thomas Aquinas in the face of this evolutionism.

    Don't just read the Schoolmen, read ALL the Fathers, Saints, Doctors and various Councils of the Church and I assure you that you will find not one of them who made mythology out of Genesis 1-11. A great Catholic book that shows the utter imcompatibility of evolution--be it biological or philosophical with the Faith is the masterful The Doctrines of Genesis 1-11 by Rev. Victor P. Warkulwiz M.S.S. Another book (not Catholic but excellent) is Father Seraphim Rose's Genesis, Creation and Early Man.
